Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Sustained-release L-arginine to support heart health, nitric oxide production, and optimal blood flow
When sufficient L-arginine is present:
- Arteries relax, promoting optimal blood flow
- As arteries relax, already normal blood pressure can be better maintained
- Erections can occur in the normal course of intimacy
- Increased work capacity during exercise is promoted
- Lean muscle mass synthesis is supported
- Sustained-release L-arginine supports cardiovascular function, wound healing, and immune function – and is a biological precursor to nitric oxide
L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in multiple areas of human physiology and metabolism. L-arginine significantly affects endocrine function and helps regulate the release of neurotransmitter chemicals, insulin, glucagon (which has the opposite effect of insulin; i.e., it raises blood sugar), and growth hormone. However, one of L-arginine's most compelling contributions to human physiology is its role as a biological precursor of nitric oxide. The vascular endothelium (the lining of the arteries) creates nitric oxide from L-arginine, resulting primarily in blood vessel relaxation. This property is important to maintaining good vascular health, heart health, reproductive health, and protection against oxidative damage.
Maintaining the natural and healthy function of the vascular endothelium depends on an adequate supply of L-arginine being available to these cells. As mentioned above, the conversion of L-arginine to nitric oxide is responsible for these functions by making the endothelial cells more resistant to oxidative damage and adhesion by otherwise harmful substances. Numerous studies have demonstrated that individuals with sufficient nitric oxide production by endothelial cells maintain the best cardiovascular health.
In a large, double-blind clinical trial that observed male reproductive health issues, 1.6 grams of L-arginine given daily for six weeks resulted in improvement in reproductive health in those men who had low nitric oxide metabolism.
Like most amino acids, L-arginine functions as a building block for proteins; however, its presence also appears to support wound healing. Numerous studies show L-arginine supplementation benefits wound healing time and the strength of the tissues in and around the wound during the healing phase.
Without adequate L-arginine (and subsequently, nitric oxide) available to the vascular endothelial cells, arteries might not optimally dilate, which can result in less than optimal blood flow to the organs and extremities.
L-arginine is absorbed and metabolized very quickly in the body, which usually necessitates taking it multiple time during the day. However, sustained-release Perfusia-SR maintains an optimal level of L-arginine over 24 hours with suggested twice-daily use.
Studies on Perfusia-SR show increased blood flow to the heart muscle and the extremities, maintenance of already normal blood pressure, and improved vascular elasticity. A recent study demonstrated improvements in blood flow after Perfusia-SR supplementation in individuals who had less than optimum heart health. In another study, Perfusia-SR was given to 29 healthy volunteers for one week and significant support for a healthy cardiovascular system was observed.

Having undertaken readings into the research of the studies that have been done with Perfusia SR, I decided to try some. Along with other supplements there seems to be merit in the belief that it is good for the arteries and "Blood Pressure". I have found that it has contributed to lowering blood pressure for a family member. So it is definitely worth trying.

We are giving this a try, so far it seems to be helping with his mis-beats. He is not having them as frequently. Time will tell though.
